Who dat say dey gonna beat them Saints? Who dat? Who dat?
And as they were beating the Cowboys tonight, I came across Chris Rose’s essay “Saints preserve us.” In it, he asks:
I can’t stop wondering what life would be like around here if the Saints were 4-8 instead of 8-4. Or worse. What if we were 2-10? How would we deal with it?
Am I a lesser man because I have linked my emotional well-being to the success of a football team? And am I any lesser because, if that football team were 4-8 instead of 8-4, I would dump them on the sidewalk in front of my house with all my Sheetrock, old 8-tracks and moldy footwear?
